During the 2022 Season live stream, Riot showed off the changes coming to the Prestige Shop, new upcoming skins, as well as lots of other new features that will be hitting the rift throughout 2021.

One of the biggest changes is the addition of ‘Challenges’ which will give players a chance to customize their profile, even if they aren’t focused on the grind of solo queue. So let’s recap and go over everything that Challenges are in League of Legends.

What Are Challenges in LoL?

Challenges will give every player a chance to show off their skill in League of Legends on their profile. Unlike other one-and-done achievements, Challenges will be able to level up by completing them multiple times.

So, you could be a ‘bronze’ player in a certain challenge, but by playing more games of League of Legends, you can level up the challenge and show off just how good you are at certain aspects of your favorite MOBA.

Challenges are put into various categories since Riot will focus on giving every player a Challenge that fits them and their playstyle.

What Challenge Categories Will Exist?

You’ll be able to find the challenges in a special tab in the League of Legends client once they go live. There will be a total of six categories of different challenges in the League of Legends client:

The sixth challenge category is Legacy Challenges, which are time-limited challenges to commemorate past achievements others can no longer obtain. They don't contribute to your overall progress, nor can you level up Legacy as a category.

How Can You Use Challenges to Personalize Your Profile?

In 2022 you’ll be able to personalize your profile, by choosing your icon border – not just between your rank and prestige border. You’ll be able to choose between any of the borders you’ve unlocked.

That isn’t all though, you can also add Challenges onto your banner, so when you’re in a lobby with your friends, you can show off your ingenuity and love for ARAM thanks to the crests of the challenges mentioned above.

Oh and let’s not forget that Riot will also introduce titles. So if you’re especially good at something, you’ll also be rewarded with a title. You gain a title after leveling challenges up to a certain point.

When Will Challenges Go Live?

Riot wants to implement Challenges by early 2022. Since they want to kick off with over 300 Challenges, they’re still testing them out on the PBE server. But the Gameplay team wants to launch them in the first half of 2022.

Which Challenge crest are you aiming for? Do you want to show off your love for ARAM, or being able to kill the most dragons of your friends?
